Highlights
What Else You Need to KnowWith a unique blend of mild surfactants and makeup-dissolving emollients, this gentle cleanser is formulated at an ideal, non-stripping pH level of 5.5. Free of SLS, fragrance, essential oils, and silicones, Beste™ No. 9 is appropriate for all skin. Drunk Elephant is committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefit the health of the skin or support the integrity of their formulations. The brand focuses on healthy pH levels, formulations the skin recognizes, small molecular structure that’s easily absorbed, and effective active ingredients that also support the skin’s acid mantle. All of their products are designed to be mixed together—what Drunk Elephant calls making a smoothie. (This is true for all of their products except their sunscreen, Umbra, which sits on top of the skin, protecting it from UV damage.) The result is skin that is reset to its happiest, healthiest state. Drunk Elephant is a supporter of IEF (International Elephant Foundation) and is cruelty-free.

Battle of the Cleansers! 🧼 PART TWO
Battle of the Cleansers! 🧼 PART TWO
I have so many cleansers I had to make two posts about it! Here’s the second half, be sure to read part one for the other cleansers I reviewed. MY SKIN: Dry, crazy sensitive, prone to redness with a few breakouts here and there but nothing crazy. DISCLAIMER: This is just my personal experience with the products and I by no means speak for everyone’s experience. Maybe you love these products, and if they work for you, that’s amazing! If they don’t, I hope you find something that does! But if you haven’t and are looking into any of these products, I hope I can help you make an informed decision. Thanks! fresh - Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash this product highlights sugar and strawberry to exfoliate and brighten skin. My honest opinion: I know, I know, scrubs are bad and evil. I hear it all the time. However, every time I use an exfoliating active my skin loses its mind and turns bright red and can sometimes sting for a whole 24 hours after I use it. Until I find an active that doesn’t completely destroy my skin, I’m sticking to scrubs. Sugar is a great scrub since it dissolves with water, meaning the risk of over-scrubbing is minimized. And I scrub VERY gently. Since my primary concern with exfoliating is dead skin and not acne, this works just fine for me. It’s definitely one of the most gentle scrubs I’ve used, so if you just need to use a scrub like me, this is a great one to use. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample This product highlights cantaloupe and glycerin as it’s key ingredients to deeply cleanse all of the day’s impurities. My honest opinion: I used to use this as my summer cleanser daily for a long time. This is probably my 3rd bottle of it. So what happened? This cleanser did wonders for my skin when I lived in a hot and sweaty environment to clean all the gunk and full face of makeup off of me. But my life changed (and lbr so did the world) this year. I live in on a completely different side of the world and I stay indoors, rarely wear makeup and my skin has gotten a lot drier and this cleanser just doesn’t do it for me anymore. The surfactants are too stripping for dry skin. So, I’m breaking up with this cleanser. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser This product highlights kale, green tea, spinach, and vitamins B, C, and E to remove buildup and balance pH without drying. My honest opinion: Y’all, I am IN LOVE with this cleanser. I picked up the YTTP Mini kit and used the whole bottle up and purchased the full size without a second thought! The INCI list is short and sweet, full of antioxidants and just feels amazing. I walked around sephora with it and every single person I saw was like “yes that’s my fave!” Honestly this is a stellar cleanser for dry skin and I highly recommend it. Full disclosure it does have fragrance and chlorophyll as the last two ingredients, but I haven’t had an issue with it. Big love!!

I think I got these products as part of the Sephora birthday special last year and finally got around to trying them! In general, I think DE is an overrated, overpriced brand. I’m not a fan of how they handled their response to BLM, nor their customer service. But that being said, I tried to be honest and fair about reviewing these products. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream I was pleasantly surprised by this product! Texture: it is a cream, but it does not feel very heavy or sticky. I would compare the texture to in between a cream and a lotion. Scent: this product didn’t smell like anything to me and does not have fragrance. Application: the travel/sample size comes in a little jar with a screw-on lid. I washed out and am keeping the empty jar to store creams when I travel. Results: I used this nightly as my PM moisturizer. It feels very smooth and silky on the face and kept my face hydrated throughout the night. It didn’t aggravate my acne or cause additional breakouts, but I did notice some stinging on my neck a few times when I applied it there—so I’m taking 1 star off since I experienced a little irritation. I think it’s a nice moisturizer that is occlusive without being too heavy, but I won’t be repurchasing as I’m not sure how much I buy into the peptides marketing, and the price for the full size (almost $70 for 1.69 oz) is ridiculous in my opinion 🤷🏻‍♀️ I personally think there are many cheaper and better moisturizers out there. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample Unfortunately, I think this is one of the worst cleansers I have ever used 😕 Texture: the texture is a gloopy, clear gel. It’s comparable to a shampoo or body wash. Scent: this product doesn’t have fragrance, but it smells very plastic-y to me. Application: the travel/sample size comes in a tube with a twist-top. You twist the lid and there is a small hole in the center of the lid that opens to release the product. I was not a fan of the packaging. I had to prop the tube on its side instead of upright when I wasn’t using it because the lid is not 100% airtight—so a little bit of product would leak out of the hole and onto my bathroom counter if I left the tube upright (even if the lid was twisted closed). Results: I used this product 1x/day as a PM face wash and it was so drying. After I washed my face, my skin would feel super tight and dry and like I had to immediately moisturize. After a few weeks, I stopped using this on my face and ended up finishing the bottle as a body wash. Maybe for very oily skin it would be okay, but it was way too stripping for me. Again, will not be repurchasing, especially due to the high price tag for the full size ($32 for 5 oz).

Drunk Elephant Hair & Body Line... On Your Face?
Drunk Elephant Hair & Body Line... On Your Face?
Did y’all know that legitimately every product from the new Drunk Elephant release can be used on the face? That’s how biocompatible and “clean” they are. I will be reviewing the other three products (Shampoo, Conditioner, Deodorant) as facial products as well, since they were also cleared as face-safe 👀 DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Happi Scalp Scrub - Babyfacial a bit too much for you? Try Happi Scalp as a once-per-week 10-minute peel, blending physical and chemical exfoliation for baby-soft skin AND a refreshed scalp. The cellulose beads were a gentle and non-irritating scrub that I’m excited to use again! I liked this a lot and feel like the AHA concentration is low enough to allow me to use it once per week versus the two week wait between Babyfacial uses my sensitive skin requires. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Wild Marula Tangle Spray - It makes my hair soft, it makes my face soft, it fits in my purse without threatening to spill, and it’s only $25 USD. I used this as a moisturizing facial spray quite a few times when it was released, but now it’s gotten too hot and humid for liberal oil application on my combo self. But if you have dry skin, this would be an easy way to refresh your skin mid-day. Spritz, pat, enjoy your dewiness. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Kamili Cream Body Cleanser - Beste No 9 a bit too much for your dry skin? Since it’s a cream cleanser, I find Kamili leaves my skin very soft while still cleansing effectively. Since I’m lazy, this has been my go-to shower cleanser for face and body. It did have trouble removing makeup so I’d stick to using it in the AM, after the gym, or when you’re only wearing sunscreen.

Clean Beauty 🌱 Fad Or Real Deal?!
Clean Beauty 🌱 Fad Or Real Deal?!
As the beauty world continues to grow, we are seeing more and more brands either starting out or reformulating to be considered a clean beauty brand. This movement reminds me all too well of when eating organic & staying away from preservatives became a major lifestyle trend, and continues to be to this day! People are constantly finding ways to better themselves, whether it’s better healthier habits, better exercise, and now clean beauty for flawless looking skin. The question is: Is this just a fad or is clean beauty really the road to the best skin one can have? Up until around November of 2019, I didn’t really have a strict skincare regime. I washed my face in the shower with drugstore products like Clean & Clear scrub, and use whatever moisturizer was laying around. I didn’t use face masks, under eye gel patches, and I had no idea what toner or essence was! 😂 It really wasn’t until I started my makeup beauty account on IG almost a year ago that I started learning about skincare routines and how important it was to have one. But as I said, it wasn’t until November 2019 that I discovered Drunk Elephant, clean beauty, layering / mixing, and listening to my skin’s needs (needs more hydrating products, nourishing products, pore clearing products, etc). I will 100% stand by and say that my skin has never looked better since using Drunk Elephant products. But because I do try out and test products for IG, I can’t sit here and say it’s ALL I use. But I can tell you that my skin definitely reacts now (and I don’t have sensitive skin either!) when I use certain products because it is so accustomed to DE and their wonderful, beneficial ingredients. So do I think you can only have flawless looking skin using clean beauty products? No. I had relatively nice skin, no acne issues or breakouts, before having a proper skincare regime. There are also plenty of clean beauty brands that are affordable on the market like The Inkey List & Good Molecules. I think the key to great looking skin is just by listening to your skin’s needs, testing new products out in small skin patches to prevent reactions, and just using a trial and error method. What works for one person may not work for the next, and that’s perfectly fine. That’s the beautiful thing about this beauty community - there are an endless amount of options for everyone to find something that works for them!

Oil control cleanser?
Oil control cleanser?
Thoughts: I recieved this cleanser as a birthday gift this month along with protini and decided I would give it a go. I know many get excited about trying out something from this expensive brand but I can't say I was over the moon. I simply wanted to try out this cleanser from drunk elephant to see if it would wow me..It didn't. I only tried this for about a week before I went ahead and switched back to the cleanser I was using because I didn't like much the results. I had started to get little blemishes on my forehead and chin after a week. I didn't get blemishes from any other product I was using till I switched out my milky cleanser for this one so I knew it was this. I also didn't like how this left a strange not cantaloupey at all kind of scent on my face.. Now this cleanser is not all that bad it did help control/balance some oiliness I had on my nose and t zone and didn't strip my face of natural oils and such, I will give it that..but I could truly do better without this and prefer something more hydrating that won't break me out. I don't like it and won't be using this again. Claims: An innovative jelly cleanser that will remove makeup, pollution, excess oil and any grime. Targets: oiliness and makeup removal Texture: a sticky gel consistency Some ingredients: Virgin marula oil to nourish Glycerin to replenish and hydrate Cantaloupe fruit extract to soothe and hydrate Price: $32 the full size Recommendation: No I don't recommend this because of the strange scent it leaves and how it may break you out.
